The coach stands 3 to 4 metres away from the player and gently throws the ball so the player can head the ball to the side.


This is best done with the player heading the ball against a wall or goal or at a specific target on the wall. Once 10 good ones have been done, change sides.

This can be progressed by asking the player to head the ball higher or lower at random or increasing the distances between the coach, player and wall.
